Portlaoise AFC Academy U8 Blitz v St Aengus – Saturday 22nd October 2016

On a beautiful autumn afternoon in Rossleighan our U8’s had their first taste of a “real” football match when we played several 5 a side matches against our counterparts from Mountrath club, St. Aengus. Great fun was had by all and there were lots of super goals, tackles, passes and skills on show from both sets of players in a good competitive spirit!

A real highlight was some of the teamwork on show and especially the line up for handshakes after each match! Approximately 60 players from both clubs took part. Many thanks to Portlaoise coaches on the day, Danny, Dave, James, Shane and Jayson. Well done to all!
